Contactless Payments Covid Upgrade
Use Your COVID-19 Contactless Downtime to Add Contactless Payments
COVID-19 has thrust the business world into unanticipated downtime, less commuting and more time at home. This time offers a unique opportunity to chip away at many of your product roadmap initiatives as well as time to evaluate improvements and how you can enhance your customer experience in our current climate. Upgrading your payments integration to include contactless payments is a prime example as to one of the items you can cross off your list.
The Future Is Now
The trends for retail were already demonstrating changes from companies focused on bricks-and-mortar shops with POS systems that accept credit cards, cash or checks. Slowly, small business owners have begun to incorporate online buying options. Likewise, contactless payments have become increasingly popular and desired.
As businesses have begun the process of reopening their physical locations they’ve had to consider safety in customer experiences, including how to handle payment transactions. Forbes predicts that contactless payments are the wave of the future, even after the threat of the pandemic passes. These systems offer consumer and small business benefits in that they:
- Increase customer confidence in the store’s safety protocols
- Shorten transactions times, which then leads to shorter wait times for customers
- Increase the volume of sales due to the ability to serve more customers
- Decrease fraud risks due to common features such as two-factor identification that most contactless payment systems utilize
